[laughter] >> i actually kind of like the direction here of, basically, saying to workers you can shop around, you can buy the health care plan that really suits your need. so it's a kind of freedom of choice approach. now, the way this ties in, by the way, allison, to obama's health care plan that you were talking about a minute ago is that under obama's plan what you're seeing is a lot of employers are dropping their health care plans that they provid

of interviews for "60 minutes," steve kroft and i asked about their medicare plans. >> what i won't do is take governor romney and congressman ryan's recommendations to turn medicare into a voucher system which would dump more costs on to seniors. what i'm not willing to do is to pay for another tax cut for folks like you and me by cutting help to young people to go to college or basic research that might end up providing cures for debilitating diseases. that's not a recipe for growth and we can reduce our deficit, including making some smart decisions on medicare in particular, where we're focused on lowering health care costs by reforming how health care is delivered but we don't need to be voucherizing the system to dump those costs on to seniors because, frankly, they can't afford it right now. >> pelley: there is a lot of rhetoric about medicare. what do you intend to do? >> well, i don't want any change to medicare for current seniors or for those that are nearing retirement. so the plan stays exactly same. >> pelley: make sure i understand. the idea under your plan for future seniors wo

, a defiant steve jobs waited weeks before acknowledging an antenna problem in the iphone 4. >> then, there are some customers who are having problems with their iphone 4s. and i apologize to them. >> reporter: a rare concession from a man whose drive for perfection made apple number one. given how detail oriented steve jobs was, one has to wonder if something so blatantly obvious would have happened under his watch. >> i think on one hand, we can definitely assume that he would have been really meticulous and he would have found these errors. but on the other hand, this could have been his fault. he was really pushing for a separation between google and apple. >> reporter: and apple ceo today went as far as suggesting that customers continue to use going google maps and other rival products until apple works out the glitches in its own program. clearly a humbling day for him. >> your iphone alarm still works for "gma" in the morning. >> reporter: i'll be up early. >> we'll see you then. >>> still much more ahead on "world news" this friday night. the political power couple and their

debt. that was pointed out by steve croft and here is what the president had to say. >> i inherited the biggest deficit in our history. over the last four years, the deficit has gone up but 90% is a consequence of two wars that weren't paid for, as consequence of tax cuts that weren't paid for. a prescription drug plan that wasn't paid for and worst economic crisis since the great depression. that accounts for 10% for the increase in the deficit. >> we asked editor james free man to run the numbers. so let's take these one by one. did president obama inherit the biggest deficit in american history? >> it wasn't the biggest and he didn't inherit it. world war ii had bigger deficits. he didn't really inherit it. he helped create it. 2009 was the first year in office and especially something he doesn't seem to want to remember, stimulus $8000 billion. >> paul: as a share of the economy it was 3.2%. it did balloon to 10.1% in 2009. i would give president bush some credit for that because in fact the recession had started. the recession for his first six months of his term. what you are

, democrats say those efforts disenfranchise disenfranchise -- steve harrigan is our n. our south florida newsroom. >> the florida republic company -- the state attorney attorney's office is investigating. the executive director of florida's republic party said when we learned about potential instances of voter registration fraud that occurred in palm beach florida. we inimmediately informed the republic national committee that we were terminating the contract with the voter registration vendor we hired at their request because there is no place for voter registration fraud in florida. we talked to the person where this all started in palm beach county, the election official said there said she noticed a number of documents seemed to have been written by the same hand. this investigation is growing now beyond palm beach county to 10 counties in florida. and five states as well where strategic allied consulting did some work, a company attorney frank petty said the following strategic has a zero tolerance policy for breaking the law. one county republic election supervisor i talked to earl
leadership, rand. i also know my friend steve chabot is hear some somewhere. steve is one good principled member of congress. send him back so he can help us clean up this mess in washington. where is he? there he is. hey, steve. first off i want to thank burke buyers and buyers steel. thank you for hosting us this morning. thank you for all the work you've done to make this possible. [applause] thank you everybody, for taking the time, for coming out in the rain. have a seat. let's have a conversation, okay? you got seats. let's use them. i got to start off on a, something that was really troubling that occurred last night. did you guys watch that packer game last night? i mean, give me a break. it is time to get the real refs. and you know what? it reminds me of president obama and the economy. if you can't get it right, it is time to get out.
